Cricket is the second most watched sport in the world, with more than 2.5 billion fans. It has been more than 300 years since the sport first emerged. Two teams of eleven players each attempt to defeat the other. The game involves a ball and a bat. The batsman attempts to hit the ball after the bowler pitches it in an effort to score runs.
Cricket is an extremely traditional sport with many storied history. However, the game has updated to the point where there are currently three varieties of cricket. Test matches lasting five days, one-day international cricket, and 20-over cricket are the three types. Cricket has attracted billions of followers and remained relevant as a result.
The fielders in cricket are subject to very few restrictions. To truly make an out, all you need to do is catch the ball while it is in the air. The rules become far more complicated for bowlers and batters.
Cricket is thought to have started as a game in which village lads bowled at a tree stump or at a hurdle gate into a sheep corral as early as the 13th century. This gate had two uprights with a crossbar resting on the slotted tops; the crossbar was known as a bail, and the entire structure was known as a wicket.
This was preferable to the stump, which was later the name given to the hurdle uprights, because the bail could be moved when the wicket was struck. The size of the wicket, which got a third stump in the 1770s, varies in early manuscripts, but by 1706 the pitch—the space between the wickets—was 22 yards long.
